The Seven Oaks School Division is organizing the second Kids @ Play program for September 22 & 23, 2008. Last year 700 students participated over two days through a series of activities at Kildonan Park designed to expose them to life-activities they can pursue on their own.

This year the organizers want 300 such activities for the participants. Groups of about 15 - 20 students will arrive at a station and stay for about 45 minutes.

I have signed up to offer Geocaching. We have access to 12 simple GPSr's and will have a bit of a budget to purchase materials. We won't use existing caches in the park but will place several temporary caches for the students to use.

Students will learn about caching etiquite in addition to how to use the GPSr. If anyone is interested in coming along to help out, visit, or contribute in some way (say, by whipping up a simple cache container) that would be awesome.

The event received a lot of press last year on radio and tv - perhaps the MBGA might want to gear up some media in conjunction with this big event?

anywhoo... I'd be happy to hear some feedback and advice on this event...

cheers
